Our 200 Hour Combined TEFL Course goes above and beyond our essential 120 hour TEFL course, creating the perfect cocktail of in-depth online learning with a weekend of practice in the classroom.
We understand that for first time TEFL teachers you want to be as prepared as possible for when you start teaching. And that’s why we’ve included not only 2 of our top selling specialist TEFL courses but also our classroom TEFL course for engaging, hands on learning. Get to grips with the essentials of teaching English as a foreign language plus brush up on your grammar and learn how to adapt your teaching style for younger learners. And when it comes to your classroom course, you’ll be spoilt for choice! We run regular weekend classroom courses across the world giving you chance to put your new skills to the test.
With 200 hours of TEFL training under your belt you’re going to be an attractive prospect to future employers, so whether you’re looking to teach to fund future travels or it’s the start of a new career, this is something you can’t miss off your CV!
The beauty of the 200 hour TEFL course is that it’s truly flexible. Because the majority of your studying will be done online all you’ll need is the internet and you’re good to go. When it comes to your weekend TEFL course it’s up to you whether you pick the date up front or you can opt for the flexi-option and decide when it works for you.
We know that studying online comes with its own challenges which is why all of our courses give you dedicated and helpful feedback from expert tutors. They’re there to answer your questions and help you become the great TEFL teacher you can be. Plus there’s always the weekend course for you to talk through any tricky things that you come across.
And if you’re thinking that the course is going to be 200 hours of boredom you can think again! Our courses are jam-packed with quizzes, interactive real-life scenarios and videos to help you put the theory into practice.

"Can I change the specialist courses to something else?"
Unfortunately not. We carefully picked the additional specialist courses based on customer feedback and our expert TEFL knowledge. If you want to keep studying (which we always encourage!) we offer several other specialist courses, so if there’s something else you fancy you can always add it on later.
"How soon before I’m teaching abroad?"
Keen to get out there and live the TEFL dream? You could be teaching in the sunshine in as little as three months.
We find most people take four to six weeks to complete the 120 hour online course. You can complete the classroom course at any point, it's totally up to you. It’s up to you whether you want to wait until you’ve completed the specialist courses before applying for jobs but the minimum requirement for TEFL is 120 hours training.
"Where can I teach abroad?"
The world really is your oyster when it comes to teaching English as a foreign language! You can teach anywhere where English is not a first language – it’s a lot of places. Just pick your dream destination and you could be there sooner than you think!
Our qualifications have been approved by Gatehouse Awards, the awarding organisation recognised by Ofqual . Make your CV stand out from the crowd with a TEFL qualification from i-to-i.
Who are Ofqual?
Ofqual is the British exam watchdog and their job is to ensure qualifications awarded are of the highest standard. An Ofqual stamp of approval on your qualification will be recognised worldwide and is highly respected by employers, pushing your resume to the top of the pile and getting you your dream TEFL job!
Why is it important to me?
There’s plenty of TEFL jobs out there but competition is tough, which is why you need to stand out from your peers. With a qualification from i-to-i you’ll have a qualification which has been independently checked to the highest standards, providing you with the best, so you can be the best.
Did you know?
We’ve also received independent accreditation from the ODLQC (Open & Distance Learning Quality Council) which is recognised by employers across the globe giving you a qualification which will give you the best start on your TEFL journey.
With so many TEFL courses out there it’s hard to know what to look for so here’s our top tips:
